the best face serums for normal or dehydrated skin
Adding a face serum to your regular skin care routine has many benefits. It can address skin concerns at its root and give you healthy, naturally glowing skin with regular use over time. Before you start using a face serum, it’s important to find one that suits your skin type.
What Is a Face Serum?
Essentially, a face serum is a lightweight topical skin product that contains active ingredients and penetrates deeper into your skin layer. These ingredients address specific skin concerns including dark spots, dullness, fine lines and wrinkles, hyper sensitivity and acne. Serums contain a high concentration of these active ingredients and hence give you better results, quicker. A face serum is best used after cleansing and toning, and before moisturising.
How to Choose the Right Serum?
Each face serum comes with a different cocktail of ingredients to help improve your skin health. It’s important to understand your skin type, to identify your skin concerns and accordingly choose ingredients that are suitable.
Face Serums for Normal or Dehydrated Skin
If your skin is fairly fuss-free and just needs a boost of hydration or tends to get dehydrated easily, all you need is a face serum that provides added moisture and TLC (in addition to, of course, drinking lots of water). These Dermalogica face serums will give your skin the much-needed nourishment, leaving you with healthy, happy skin.
Phyto Replenish Oil: This feather-light treatment oil rapidly absorbs into the skin to reinforce its protective barrier. The next-generation formula takes a three-phase approach to replenishing protective lipids that are depleted by ageing and environmental stress. First, phytoactives from Camellia and Tamanu oils help restore the skin’s natural barrier. Then, an essential lipid blend that includes Orchid Flower and Chia Seed Oil smoothes visible lines and locks in critical moisture. Finally, Sunflower, Rice Bran and Rosemary Extracts create a luminous antioxidant shield against free radical damage.
Skin Hydrating Booster: The hydrating fluid concentrate in the Skin Hydrating Booster relieves dryness and the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and Algae Extract help restore moisture balance and minimise the appearance of fine dehydration lines. Use prior to, or mix with, your moisturiser to help lift moisture levels. It may also be applied directly to dry areas as targeted treatment.
